Presenters:

  • Lance Baumgard, PhD , Professor of Nutritional Physiology | Iowa State University

    Lance is a native of southwest Minnesota who grew up on a swine and row-crop farm. He has a B.S. and M.S. degree from the University of Minnesota and a PhD from Cornell University. Baumgard joined Iowa State University in 2009 and is the Norman Jacobson Professor of Nutritional Physiology in the Department of Animal Science. At Iowa State University, Lance’s Environmental Physiology efforts have evaluated how heat stress alters post-absorptive fuel selection in growing pigs and many of the same metabolic changes occurring in ruminants also occur in pigs. His findings primarily explain why heat-stressed pigs accrue more lipid and less protein than energetically predicted. He teaches Principals of Nutrition, and co-teaches Food Processing for Companion Animals at the undergraduate level and teaches Bioenergetics and co-teaches Advanced Ruminant Nutrition at the graduate level. Lance has mentored or co-advised 8 PhD and 15 MS students and all of them are currently successful in a variety of industry and academic positions.
